This week – Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen's energy program is gonna give you all the nasty details on the methane leak in California – the backstory, present putrid mess and what's next.
Also, some silver lining stories PLUS next week is an important week of action all across the US, so mark your calendars.
But first, let's start off with a contemplative musing –--- how do you remember?
**If you're enjoying this podcast and the video show, please consider being a patron! Everything we do is self-funded and self-produced so every little bit helps!
This week, we have a special podcast lined up! It's a longer edition as we have the regular audio from the show PLUS a special addendum featuring Eleanor's recent interview on KPFK Los Angeles. There she discusses her politics, poetry & performs a few spoken word pieces. We'll get to that after the regularly scheduled podcast :)
...which includes: a post-SOTU look-back because, you know, hindsight is 20/20 and President Obama is full of shit. Next, stop paying attention - to the presidential election. Consider this a mini-rehab. Finally Mark Pershin talks climate change at the dinner table. But first, Deeds Not Words.
This week:--- 'tis better to give than to receive – but who are you giving to and who's really receiving the gift? With the help of non-profit employee and activist, Anna Kaminski, we dive into the non-profit industry and peek behind that shiny charity veneer.
Next up, from coast to coast, let's talk the fossil fuel industry – fracking, oil trains, export terminals oh my. Activists are making gains but they need your help in taking this fight up to the next level.
But first, you have to lose it – a paradigm lost.

This week on the front lines, the US Trade Rep's office wants your opinion on something and lawmakers in California might be up for a makeover. Next up, a website developer pushes for you to get offline, activists uncover the food industry's push to serve up a buffet table of low life scum and finally, we can adapt, but should we? But first, love and peace in the deep end.
Note: there's a short slideshow this week with anti-TPP memes so be sure to go to occupy.com/actout to see the full episode and grab those memes to post and share!

For those of you who follow the TV show, you know that we didn't have a show this week. But I just couldn't let January 1st pass without a podcast so here, in lieu of the audio from the video show, are the words you missed.
A few select spoken word pieces that came before we started doing the podcast in week 23.
Here, I performed them live, one take, on a shitty mic in my living room - you know, guerilla style creative activism :)
Here's to a 2016 filled with creativity, activism and inspiration.
Thanks for listening and keep acting out!
